Volleyball games are not measured in minutes, but in points and sets. But, a five-set game, with sets going to 25 points and then a final set of 15 points, will usually last for about an hour to an hour and a half.

There is no set time for volleyball matches, you continue until one team scores enough points.

Volleyball sets are normally played to 25 points (30 in some mens' tournaments). Whoever reaches to 25 first, but by a point difference of 2, wins. A set can thus be extended, i.e. it may finish 33-31. A match is played best of 5 sets, i.e. 3 sets must be won, or especially with youth, best of 3 sets. When a last, decisive set is needed (fifth/third) it is played until 15 points. When time is an issue, a set may start on 7-7 or 10-10 to shorten the game.

The length of a match in time depends highly on the difference in skill between both teams. A short match might be played in 30 min, but a match between two equal opponents can take more than 90 min. Tie-break issues are resolved by scoring on every ball, not only balls by own serve as before 1999.

In tournements playing "best of 3", 45 min is often allocated for each match, and it usually works out in the end.

Between sets, a 3 min rest is allowed (often 10 min "half-time pause" before set 3), and two 30 sec time-outs per team and set are allowed. If a match must be interrupted, it should be continued later counting the finished set, and starting interrupted set from 0-0. In cases even from 0-0 in set.

There isn't any set time limit. There are 3 matches inside of a game, and when a certain amount of points are scored, that marks the end of a match. A team needs to win at least two matches in a three match game (or three in a five match game) in order to win. Volleyball games can last anywhere from 1.5 - 2 hours.

Volleyball sets aren't timed, they're point-based.

Every age level of volleyball takes a different amount of time to complete a set based on ability and number of points needed to win, since some ages will be slower than others.
